Very pretty restaurant in the Sofitel - the food is French style but is pretty average - we tried it for both a breakfast and a dinner as we were staying in-house. As a Coeliac I found it difficult to get breakfast food - they did offer some GF toast but it wasn't pleasant and other than that there was... More

The staff was great and the place is nice and comfortable but we were really disappointed with the quality of the food...it was cheap and unattractive. We had high expectations because we heard the restaurant was excellent and the hotel itself is gorgeous. The food was not good and mostly non chocolate. And it was very expensive for a tea... More

I stay at Soifitel once or twice a year and have become an inveterate user of Le Sud. If you are looking for truly fine food with more emphasis on quality than quantity this is a place for you. Add to that a service that competes with the best anywhere. I had supper yesterday and today here and the team... More

We've been there recently during BA food week. The food was really very good and well served, but we didn't like desserts because they are extremely sweet, even the one with lemon curd. This is a pity. The ambiance is nice, except for the noise. It's an expensive place.

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary there and had a lovely experience, so it was a logical choice when celebrating our 33rd. We wanted to make the reservation online and had to go through a website for Restorando; the only way we could make the reservation with Le Sud directly was by phone… We arrived promptly and were shown to...

We booked a table for four of us on a special menu called La Table D'Olivier, lots of "Bonsoir" but the serving of the table was not up to the level of the hotel. Food was not good, one of the plates was changed for another one because it did not taste good, desserts were nothing to write home about,... More

The place is very crowded with the tables so close together. Service was very poor and slow this morning at breakfast. The attendant waitress would not walk close to get a guest's order but talk over the table of 6 people, how rude. The food is not that great too. The toast came after I have finished my breakfast.

We went to ale Sud hoping for a great Argentinian steak. The steak's flavor was strange and had lots of grizzle. The atmosphere was very nice. The pumpkin soup was fair, but was served in a pumpkin and scooped out at the table which was nice. They served several appetizers that we skipped because they were seafood which we don't... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
